Marks & Spencer as a grocer

M&S is a mixed retailer and sometimes not even included in statistics about the UK grocery market. When viewed as a grocer the company had a market share of slightly over three percent as of April 2020. Compared to Aldi, which held approximately eight percent of the market in the same month, and other grocers, M&S is only a minor player on the market. Since the first of September 2020, M&S grocery products can be ordered via the online grocery store Ocado.
